    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cristal.

    Interview

    The interview process was one of the best interview processes I have ever been through, although the process was long. The HR generalist did a fantastic job at keeping me up-to-date with the proper information that I needed and made sure she checked in to keep me interested in the job. I was well informed with the information I needed to go into the interview feeling very confident.

    Prior to the interview they had me take an aptitude and personality test. The interview was schedule for an hour and a half and the first part of the interview consisted of me providing them an overview of my background and my motivation for applying to Cristal. The second part of the interview consisted of competency-based questions. I met with the HR generalist, my reporting manager as well as an additional manager that I would be working closing with if I were to land the job.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cristal.

    Interview

    They tell you a lot about the position and what you are expected to do. Then you get hired and who knows what they expect. There is decent training for things you really don't need and then lack of training for important every day job tasks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cristal.

    Interview

    Grueling 3+ hour interview that was highly unprofessional. Everyone there seemed incredibly stressed out. The longer you are there the more you can feel the life being sucked out of you. My advice to others is to stay away; This company is going downhill real fast.

    Functional Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cristal (Washington, DC) in January 2011.

    Interview

    A bit unorganized. One person contacted me for an interview and brought in a second person who was not notified of an interview taking place. This caused a bit of an awkward question and answer period as the second person was caught by surprise and had to improvise (albeit the improvisation was very good). The induction process was also very poor.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions e.g. What have you done previously, what is your background in working with others, have you lead teams, what is your experience in heavy industry, etc. The overall interview as fairly straight forward, although the job description and interview questions did not match what I ended up being hired for.   Answer Question
